Lieutenant General Obed Boamah Akwa, Chief of the Defence Staff (CDS), has commended the private sector for believing in the expertise, capabilities and skills of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF).
He said the opportunity given to the GAF to demonstrate its capabilities in the fields of engineering, logistics and security, to support the construction of the first Infectious Disease Control, Isolation and Treatment Centre in the country, was an ample testimony of the believe Ghanaians have in the armed forces.
Speaking after inspecting works on the project Lt. Gen. Boamah Akwa, thanked the Ghana COVID-19 Private Sector Fund, sponsors of the project, for bringing the GAF on Board in that historic venture.
